Cairo, Ills., December 19, 1S70.
To the Lditorof the Uulletin:
Dear Sir : Cairo, for Its size and pop
ulation, has had more drawbacks than
any other place In the country ; and now
that there are so many tramps all over the
country, Cairo, .because of her goo
graphical position, receives more than her
due share of this class of men. Another
nuisance that we have to contend with
isio want of water. It seems rather
strange that while we have so much of
It about us, no have to depend on the
watPr carts lor a supply, and whose ex
orbitant charge of fifty cents per load
works especial hardships on the poorer
classes; and a poor family that has
not got fifty cents must do with
out it. It seems to me that
there should bo some remedy for these
two difilculties, and our honorable city
council should bestir themselves and reg
ulate these evils by ordinance, which I
believe they have the power to do ; and
if they have not they ought to have It,
as all other cities In civilized countries
have. At thirty cents per load any wa
ter cart driver ought to be able to make
good wages, and they should not bo al
lowed to charge any more. Also an or
dinance should be passed, or if we have
one, should be enforced, so as
to effect a riddance from the city
of all the able-bodied tramps
that crowd our street corners. They
could all be arrested and put to work on
the levees, or at any other work required
by the city, and I venture the assertion
that before iorty-clght hours will have
passed that the city will be relieved ot
their presence. When a man is sick and
needs help, I say extend it to him; but
when so many able-bodied men will go
around begging, people get tired and
eventually treat those who may really be
needy in the same category as those who
arc able to work. Tho country at large
is not in so bad a condition that a man
who Is able and willing to work cannot
make a living. These men laying aro und
the city take the cry of "hard times" as
an excuse to shirk work ; and If every
place at which ihey congregate would
force them to work, or move on, they
would soon get tired and seek work for
pay as tho better way out of their dilem
ma. With "Heavy Tax-payer" I believe
that if our city officials were paid ior their
services, more atteLtioii would be paid
to the general interests of the city and
the above nuisances would receive the at
tention that Is duo them. X B

r.teitt In the. Life of a Prominent
Cairo Bualnean Han.
From the Vnlted 8tatea motrraphleal Metlon
ary and Portrait Gallery of kimneut aud Self
Capt. Joe Maxwell Phillips, commis
sion and forwarding merchant, f Cairo,
was born in Washington county, Ken
tucky, November 10, 1923. Ills father
was Thomas Phillips, a wealthy farmer
ot that state, and his mother's maiden
name was Julia Maxwell. Both the
grandfathers of our subject wcro natives
ol the North of Ireland. They immigra
ted to America in youth, and fought on
the side ol the coldhles In tho war for In
dependence. His father was very pious
roan, a member of the Baptist commu
nion, a very active and earnest worker,
and one of the corner-stones ot tho
church of his day; liberal with
his means to church nnd benevolent ob
jects, and a very prince In hospitality.
He took great pains In tho moral train
ing of Lis children, endeavoring to im
press upon them the highest Christian
principles In regard to their duty to both
God and man, while his life was a "liv
ing epistle, known and read of all
men" with whom ho came In contact.
He died in January, 1874, In tho fifty
seventh year of his age, leaving behind
him a memory lragrant with good deeds
and holy precepts. His mother was like
minded with her husband, pious, benevo
lent and amiable. Sho left the Impres
sion of her pure womanly character on
her family, and tho circlo In which she
moved. She was, moreover, a highly in
tellectual and cultivated lady. Her dis
position was Identical with that of her
husband. Their inclinations were nicely
toned unison, and all their conversation
harmony. Their yoke was easy, and
every nuptial blessing was twisted with
their bands. She died in August, 1841,
leaving nine surviving children, sevei of
whom are still residents of Kentucky, and
all occupying prominent and honorable
stations in life.
Our subject was educated at St. Mary's
College and Jefferson Seminary, in his
native state, studying English, Latin,
astronomy and the higher mathematics,
the intention of his parents bring to pre
pare him for the legal profession. His own
inclination, however, was for commer
cial pursuits, and, on the death of his
father, feeling free to follow the bent ot
his own desires, he made a trip to New
Orleans on a flatboat underjtho command
ot Capt. Bentley. After this he engaged
In partnership with a large firm In the
produce trade, he being the manager and
salesman of the company. Dissolving
his partnership w ith his partners, he con
tinued the business on his own account
for five or six years more, during which
period ho accumulated the then fabulous
sum of forty-five thousand dollars.
About this time the war broke out,
and for several years laid an embargo
upon the western river trade. In this
emergency he turned his attention to the
packing ot provisions with reasonable
success. Ho also operated a wholesale
grocery and retail dry goods store In
Brandenburg, Kentucky, and was fre
quently robbed by the guerrillas, and es
pecially by Morgan's raid over the river
In 1SG3 tho magnificent steamboat
Louisiana was built, and our subject be
came her part owner and commander,
trafficking upon the Ohio and MU
sissippi rivers between Cincinnati, St
Louis and New Orleans, lor a period of
three years. In 1SC8 ho reslgued his cap
taincy and settled in Cairo in the com
mission business, in which he has been
eminently successful. He is owner of
half the stock and president of the Halli
day & Phillips wharf-boat company, the
buildings of w hich were erected at a cost
of seventy-five thousand dollars. lie is
also the proprietor of a large warehouse
located on the Ohio levee, built at an
original cost of $23,000 In 1SC5, and also
considerable real estate. He Is likewise
owner of bank stocks In Kentucky and
insurance stocks in St. Louis to a large
extent, and is one of tho most substan
tial men of tho Ohio Valley. Ho
6hips several million dollars worth
of produce to New Orleans
annually, besides large consignments of
leat tobacco to New York. He com
menced lifo with a very small capital,
and had made considerable progress be
fore his proportion ot bU father's estate
came Into his hands, which made but a
small accession to his possessions. Al
though his career as a business man has
been eminently successful as a whole,
yet he has several times sustaiued con
siderable losses his heaviest drawbacks
resulting from tho largo and sudden de
cline in the price ot tobacco which fol
lowed closely upon tho termination of
trio late war.
In politics he was raised an old line
Whig, and in his native stafo voted the
Republican ticket. In 1672 he supported
the aspirations ol tho lato Mr. Greeley to
the presidency, and is now Independent
In religion he followed In tho footsteps
of his father, aud Is a worthy and gen
erous member ol tho Baptist church,
while as a merchant and citizeu he enjoys
the fullest confidence and most cordial
esteem of all who know him. He Is hos
pitable, benevolent, and charitable to all
objects for the amcloration of tho condi
tion of the human family.
Ha was married November 1, 1SJ1, to
Miss Mary ,'Ann, daughter of the late
John H. McGhce, Esq., of Mead county,
Ivy., of Irish descent. He was an exteu
s!v farmer, with a highly cultivated
military talent, and was colonel oft regi
ment of local miiitia. They have no
children, but have adopted au orphan
niece uauiod Carrie Belle Phillips.

There were no arrivals or departures
yesterday. The river continued to fall
until noon yesterday, when it came to a
stand, and shortly after began to rise.

ternoon. This is due to the gorgo at
The weather moderated greatly yester
day and the night previous, and at six
o'clock last evening the Indications of
rain were strong. Tho Mississippi ap
pears to be eflectually closed, as there Is
little or no floating Ice coming out of
that stream. The Ohio is still closed
above this port. A gorge Is
reported to have formed at
the Iron Bank just above Columbus
on Monday night; but If tho weather
should continue as warm as at present,
this gorge cannot last long. The Ste.
Genevieve left this port for the South on
Tuesday evening, and yesterday a report
was current that the was stuck fast in the
ice. Late In the afternoon a telegram
was received by Capt Riley from Capt.
Kelser at St. Louis, stating that
he bad ordered the Ste. Genevieve
to return to Cairo. Tho receipt of this
telegram created the imprcssiou that the
report that the boat was Iat iu the ice was
incorrect that she had not gone so far
into the ice as not to bo able to make her
way out again. She was expected to ar
rive during tho night. The John B.
Maude left Memphis for Cairo on Mon
day evening, but will not be able to
reach here unless the gorge at Columbus
breaks away. Pilots who arrived at
Memphis on Tuesday report only four
feet of water In the channel at Oceola.
The City of Chester dropped down to the
wharfboat yesterday afternoon, where
she will discharge her freight, and reload
for the south, to leave when the Ice thins
out. Capt. Jack Grammar, superinten
dent of the Evausville and Cairo packet
company, was iu the city. He left by
the afternoon train lor home yesterday.
